Just Unveiled: Aoshima Grand Champions Series 7 Nissan 330 Cedric Secret Chase Car...
A late night jump-in to show you the first pics we have seen of the Secret Chase Vehicle from the latest Grand Champions set from Aoshima.
If you have followed the blog for any period of time, you know that Aoshima 1:64 models are some of our favorite. These racers just scream Japan, and they are marvelously done. Like other Japanese brands, Aoshima employs the "blind-box" method, meaning unless you buy a whole set, you don't know what model you have until you open the box.
But on top of that, Aoshima mixes in a very small number of chase cars, and a few lucky folks will discover one when they open their box. Aoshima does not reveal what the secret car will be until someone discovers one.
Well, Aoshima was kind enough to give Lamley readers a special deal on these sets, and they are just arriving at collector's homes. One of our readers, Adam Holt, was one of the lucky ones, pulling the chase from his set, and just sent over a pic. So thanks to Adam, we now know that the secret car is the Nissan 330 Cedric.
It normally looks like this:
The one in Adam's set looks like this:
Mmmmm, bosozoku goodness. Those of you lucky enough to get the set, you might take a look to see if you have the rare chase as well...
(Thanks Adam for sharing.)
